Philosophy of Ministry
Redemption City Church exists to pursue a relationship with God, his people, and the advance of his kingdom for the glory of God and the joy of all peoples through Jesus Christ by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Redemption City Church is seeking to be a redemption movement in the heart of the city that transforms lives, forms community, renews the city, and impacts the world through church planting.
Theological - Theology is literally the study of God. The apostle John tells us that “this is eternal life, that they know you the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent” (John 17:3). We believe that meaning, satisfaction, identity, freedom, and hope is ultimately found in a relationship with God.
Relational - The doctrine of the trinity teaches us that we were made for deep, authentic, and loving relationships. We were created in the image of a communal God for community. Jesus prayed for his church “that they may be one, even as we (Trinity) are one” (John 17:11b). We believe that authentic & loving relationships united around Jesus are an essential expression of the true church.
Missional - To be missional is to recognize that we are missionaries sent out to spread the good news of Jesus in word and deed wherever God has placed us. Jesus told his disciples before he left: “As you sent me into the world, so I have sent them into the world” (John 17:18). We are a sent people inviting everyone into God’s epic story of redemption.
Gathering: The Gathering is where Redemption City Church comes together from across the city to be reminded of all the God is for us through Jesus Christ by the power of the Holy Spirit so that we can be send out on mission in our city and world.
Communities: Communities meet in neighborhoods throughout the city to go deeper into our relationship with God, build deeper relationships with each other, and be on mission together in word & deed in the places where God has planted us.
DNA Groups: Within each community there are always opportunities go even deeper into each other lives, the gospel, and what it looks like to be a fully devoted follower of Jesus.
